As the conscience of science and scholarship in the Netherlands, the Academy is deeply concerned about the ethical aspects of research.
It expresses that concern by offering advice, organising meetings and participating in public debates.
For definitions of the various types of scientific misconduct, please see:
The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (“the Academy”) has a procedure for reporting suspected violations of scientific integrity within its research organisation. This procedure applies both to Academy employees and others who have a complaint regarding possible violations of scientific integrity on the part of current or former Academy employees. The complaint procedure is based on the revised procedure of the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (Vereniging van Universiteiten VSNU) which was revised in June 2012.
The Academy has investigated how researchers in various disciplines manage their research data and what improvements can be made. The study was prompted by the heated discussion on this subject.
